A handful of Crown Heights institutions received visits from New York City’s Department of Health (DOH) on Wednesday, including Bais Rivkah, United Lubavitcher Yeshiva and several neighborhood shuls.

The inspection was the result of reports about parents standing unmasked in front of school buildings. As reported on, Crown Heights institutions are taking a stricter stance on mask-wearing inside schools. They are also urging parents not only to follow all rules, but not to engage in any activity that draws the eye, such as congregating in front of the building, legal as it may be.

“We must continue to do all that we can to ensure that we can keep our doors open and avoid unwarranted attention,” urged the schools who received visits, in a letter to parents.

Notwithstanding the rising rates of Covid-19, NYC public schools are set to re-open next week and eyes will be increasingly focused on the city’s educational system. Administrators of both public and private schools are working hard to ensure they can remain open, and need the full cooperation of parent and student bodies.
